**KENT COUNTY SHOW REPORT**
Firstly, Committee would like to thank the members who so kindly gave up their time to help with both the set-up and running of the Poultry Section, also to those who helped with the dismantling after the show. We couldn’t stage this without your help so thank you all very much.
Our marquee size and content has grown beyond recognition during the last 5 years and we would like to thank Kent County Agricultural Society for their continued support and encouragement of our Section. Thanks must also go to all of our sponsors and contributors who help to make our marquee such a success.
A huge thank you must go to our judges and speakers for our education section; Michael and Sylvia Hatcher, Jed Dwight, Simon Harvey, Philippe Wilson, Robin Creighton, Arthur Stockwin and Steve Clout and also our President Maureen Embry and her husband David for assessing the wonderful schools display.
We were honoured to be awarded Best Agricultural Stand, the wonderful comments from both judges and the general public were just what we needed to give our flagging bodies a boost! Our new site on Falmouth Avenue meant a constant stream of visitors so we were kept very busy over the three days. The gate attendance for the show was 80,000 and it felt like most of them had visited our marquee.
